and clear that her own sanny smile
came back. "I don't know whnt to
make of you." she said. '1 reckon you
must be a poet."
It dark when they roa'heJ the
Tillage, but Way laud declared his abil
ity to go on. although his wounded
head was throbbing with fever and he
was clinging to the pontine' of Lis sad
dle: so Uerrie rode on.
Mrs. Ab-Farlaue. hearing the horses
on the bridge, was at the door and
received her daughter witL wondering
question, while the stable bauds, (juicl;
to detect an injured man. hurried to
lift Norcross down from his saddle.
"What's the matter?" repeated Mrs..
"He feli and struck his head on a
stone." Iierca hastily explained. "Take
the horses, boys! Mother and I will
look out for Mr. Norcross.
The men obeyed her and fell bat k.
but they were consumed with curios
ity, and tbetr glances irritated the girl.
"Slip the packs at once." the insisted.
With instant sympathy her mother
came to her aid in sup:on.iPS the
wounded, weary youth indoors, unil u:

sitting room he remarked with a faint.
Ironic smile. "This beats any bed cf

"Where's your father?" asked Mrs.
WcFarlaue of her daughter.
"lie's over on the I'tarmigan. I've
a powerful lot to tell you, mother, but
iiot now; we must look after Way land.
He's nearly done up. and so am I."
Mrs. McKarlane winced a little ct
her daughter's use of .oivmss' Erst
name, but she said nothing turther at J
the moment, although she watched
l'errie closely w hile she took off Way
laud's shoes and stn kini:s jmic! rubbed
his icy feet- "Get him something Lj
as quick as you can!" she -ir,ra!idef-.
and Mrs. McFarlaue obeyed v.iihont
Gradually the tremor passed cut of
his limbs and a delicious sense of
warmth, of safety, stole over him. cud
he closed his eyes iu the comfort of
her presence and care. "IUgorous bus'-'
ness this life of the pioneer." he sal:
with mocking inflection. "I thiu)i !
prefer a place In the lumber trust."
"Ion't talk." she saiL Then, w ith a
rush of tender remorse: "Why diJut
you tell me to stop? I didn't realize
that you were so tired. We could have
stopped at the Springs."
"1 didn't know how tired I was till I
pot here. Gee." he snld lioyishly. "that

redhot! Y'ou're good to me," he added
She hated to have him resume that

He accepted her loving praise, her
clasping arms, as a part of the rescue
from the darkness and pain of the
long ride, careless of what it might
bring to him in the future. He ate his
toast and drank Lis coffee and permit
ted the women to lead him to las room,

Mrs. Mcrarl.ine. looking upon her
daughter in amazement, saw on her
face the shadow of the deadly rage
which had burned iu her heart as she
clinched young Itelden's throat.
"What then? What happened then?"
"He let go. you bet." Her smile
came back.
"When did this take place?"
"Yesterday about . Of course YTay
land couldn't ride, he was so dizzy and
kind o confused, and so I went into
camp right there at timber line. Along
about sunset Nash came riding up from
this side and insisted on staying to
help me, so I let him."
Mrs. Md'arlanes tense attitude re
laxed. "Nash is not the kind that tat
tles. I'm glad he turned up."
"And this morning 1 saddled and
came down."
"Iid Nash go on?"
"Yes. Daddy was waiting for him.
so I let him go along."
"It's nil sad business." groaned Mrs.
McKarlane. "and I can see you're keep
ing something back. How did Cliff
happen to know just where you were,
and what started you back . without
your father?"
Kor the first time K.errie showed
signs of weakness and distress. "Why.
you see. Alec Helden and Mr. Moore
were over there to look at some tim
ber, and old Marm Ileldon and that
Moore girl went along. 1 suppose they
sent word to CliiT. and I presume that
Moore girl put him on our trad. Least
wise that's tiie way I figure it out.
That's the worst f the whole busi
ness." She admitted this with dark
ened brow. "Mrs. Leiden's tongue is
liiii'g in the middle ami loose at botn
ends and that Moore girl is spiteful
mean." She could not keep the eon
tempt out of her voice.
"Oh. 1 wish you hadn't gone!" ex
claimed the worried mother.
"It can't be helped now, aud it hasn't
done me any real harm. It's all in the
day's work anyhow. I've always gone
with daddy before, raid this trip isn't
going to spoil me. The boys all know
me. and they will treat me fair."
"Yes. but Mr. Norcress is an outsid
or. a city man. They will all turns
evil of him on that account."

mother. 1 know it is. Km not hue
enough for him. but Km going to try
to change my ways so be won't be

Mrs. Mcl'arlane's face cleared. ' Lie
surely is a fine young fellow and can
lie trusted to do the rigLt thing. Welt,
we miht as well go to bed. We can t
settle anything till your father gets
hoine." she said.
Way land rose nest morning free from
dizziness and almost free from pain,
and when he came out of his room his
expression was cheerful. "I feel as it
I'd slept a week, and Km hungry. I
don't know why 1 .should be. but i am.'
Mr. McKarlane met him with some
thing very intimate, something almost
maternal iu her look, but her words
were as few and as restrained as ever
He divined that she had been talking
with Uerrie i;ml that a fairly clear tin
derstanding of the situation had been
reached. That this understanding in
volved him closoJy he was aware, but
nothing in his in:: nner ncknow ledged It.
She did not ask any questions. Ie
lieving that sooner or later t he whole
story must come out. The fact that
Siona Moore and Mrs. Itelden knew
that Uerrie had started bark on Thurs
day with young Norcross made It easy
for the villagers to discover that she
had not reached the ranch till Satur
day. "What could Joe have been think
ing of to allow them to go?" she said
"Mr. Nash's presence in the camp must
be made known, but then there is Clif
ford's assault upon Mr. Norcross. Can
that be kept secret too?" And so while
the young people chatted the troubled
mother waited in fear, knowing that
in a day or two the countryside would
le aflame with accusation.
A long day's rest, a second, night's
sleep, set Way land on his feet. He
came to breakfast quite gay. "Ilarring
the hickory nut on the bat k of my
head." he explained. "Km feeling fine,
almost ready for another expedition.
I may make a ranger yet."
lierrie, though equally gay. was not
so sure of his ability to return to
work. "I reckon you'd better go easy
till daddy gets back, but if you feel
like it we'll ride up to the postottice
this afternoon."
"I want to start right iu to learn to
throw that hitch, and I'm going to
practice with an ax till 1 can strike
twice in the same place. This trip
was an eye opener. Ureat man I'd be
iu a windfall, wouldn't 1?"
He was inrsuadcd to remaiiijyery
quiet for another day, and part of it
was sieut iu conversation with Mrs.
M Kiirlaue. w hom he liked very much,
and an hour or more iu writing a long
letter w herein he announced to his fa
ther his intention of going into the
forest service. "I've got to build up
u constitution," he said, "and I don't
know of a betler place to do it in. He
sides, I'm beginning to be interested
in the scheme. I like the supervisor.
Km living iu his house at the present
time, and I'm feeling contented and
happy, sb don't worry about me."
He was indeed quite comfortable,
save when be realized that Mrs. Mc was taking altogether too
much for granted in their relationship.
It was delightful to bo so w atched over, !
so waited upon, so instructed. "Iiut -w
here is it all leading me?" he cou-1
tinued to ask himself, and still that
wall of reserve troubled and saddened

ran.;, and the si;i:avkiug voice of Mrs.
